Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 31st December and, as it is New Year’s Eve will be a bit of a party with pizza and nibbles. Following the fire at the Jockey, the party will be held in a private house in Stanford. Please get in touch if you would like to come along so we know how much pizza to make.
The plan is to start off early with the “Feature Game”, which, like last year, will be the gorgeous, dexterity car-racing game, PitchCar. Then we will have something to eat, rearrange the tables and play something a little longer and maybe set off some fireworks at midnight.
